SINZ - Pay it Forward Movie Night

Our first movie night for the year kicked off in the ASA longue and it had an enjoyable atmosphere. ‘Pay it Forward’ was a really touching and sad movie (a few people had watery ears by the end of it). Everyone really enjoyed watching it, as the story behind it is one of great motivation; a small idea can change the whole world. It was a very good representation of what a Social Innovation project aspires to. Hopefully we can get more people to come along to our upcoming events! We really want to get more students aware of how big of a difference small things can make.

MUASC Snowplanet Trips

As an intro to the snow season, MUASC ran 3 trips to Snowplanet during Semester 1.  We used the ASA van to provide transport from Massey which means everyone can get to know each other and new members get a feel for what Snow Club trips are about.

For our events we had 13, 16 and 10 students attend respectively and the events were enjoyed by everyone who came. It was awesome to see that each group was made up of about 70% new members with a few old members coming along to help out and give skiing and snowboarding advice. It has also been great to see that some of our new members have come along to multiple nights as they are trying to “get good enough to come to the mountain”. This is exactly the opportunity we hoped to provide members with by running regular trips.  We have some funding left to run some more Snowplanet evenings, so why not come along and give it a go!

Waikato Invitational - MAFF

Massey Albany Football club sent one team down to the Waikato Invitational to represent Massey in Football. Unfortunately a couple of our players pulled out the night before which resulted in us not having the minimum two females required on the pitch. All our games were therefore played in the spirit of fun; we had 1 win,1 draw and 2 losses. Our fifth game was defaulted due to rain and not being in contention for play offs. All involved had a lot of fun on and off the pitch.

AMESS - New Pool Table

Albany Massey Engineering Student Society purchased a new pool table last month, following a generous grant from the Albany Student Association. 

 The arrival of this new pool table was welcomed by students both young and old, with undergrads, post-grads, and even staff quickly coming back out of retirement to demonstrate their skills. The new addition has been a welcome sight in the Student Recreation Room, which is the communal space on the Albany Village campus for students to relax and socialize between classes.
